“Before my son started at Rainbow Room he hadn’t left my side, therefore I was very apprehensive about leaving him.  However the staff were so warm, welcoming and approachable my worries soon faded.  He is making steady progress and I cannot thank the staff enough for all that they do.”

“A wonderful setting with amazing staff!  All the staff have been fantastic with both of my children.  My daughter loved her time at Rainbow Room and now my son attends and also loves it there.  The activities the children take part in are really good, and I love the fact the parents can stay and play every Wednesday.  Keep up the awesome work girls!”

“A brilliant setting.  the staff are fabulous with all the children.  They have been amazing with my little boy since he started in September.  He has come a  long way and that’s because of the help of all the staff.  well done to you all.”
